Sopai African Safaris

Day by Day Itinerary

The vibrant town
of Arusha is more than just a gateway to Tanzania’s ‘Northern Circuit, but for those who choose to linger a little longer before or after safari. There a lot to offer.

After a pleasant arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport or Arusha airport, you will be welcomed by one of the Sopai Safaris representatives who will initially meet and greet you. After a short introduction of himself, he will transfer you to your dedicated hotel within Arusha City for your night stay.

Meal plan: Bed and breakfasts 
Accommodation: Mount Meru Hotel 

Depart after breakfast and drive to Tarangire National Park for a full day game drive with picnic lunch. In the evening, drive to the camp for the dinner and overnight.

The Park Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely quiet park in Northern Tanzania that is most famous for its elephant migration, birding and quiet authentic safari atmosphere. The majority of travelers to the region either miss out on Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours leaving parts of Tarangire virtually untouched.

Accommodation: Farm of Dream Lodge

After your breakfast at the camp, we’ll drive to Seronera for a full day game drive at the central part of Serengeti still viewing the great migration. Late in the afternoon, we’ll drive back to the lodge for your dinner and overnight.

Game viewing is superb year-round in the Serengeti: the park is home to the Big Five (although rhinos are rarely seen), and is particularly renowned for its predators – leopard, cheetah, lion and hyena – which are regularly spotted. The Serengeti also plays host to the phenomenal Great Migration, which sees millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle traversing the open plains of the park in search of fresh grass from seasonal rains, moving northwards into the neighbouring Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, and then returning south to the Serengeti again. The dramatic scenes of huge herds on the move, crossing rivers and vast plains and pursued by predators looking for their next kill, are the stuff nature documentaries are made of. Experiencing the Great Migration is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime event that most safari travellers have at the top of their bucket list.

Accommodation: Serengeti Heritage Luxury Camp / Serengeti Pure Tented Camp or Embalakai Tented Camp

Breakfast at the Camp in the Serengeti, collect your lunch boxes and drive straight to Ngorongoro Crater, ascending the crater for the full day game drive and photography, The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the largest unbroken, unflooded volcanic caldera in the world. It is a scenic showstopper that extends across an astonishing 260 square kilometres. The crater is hemmed in on all sides by sheer craggy walls that rise up to 600m above the floor. The view from the lushly forested rim is utterly stupendous and would justify a visit to Ngorongoro in its own right. But this spectacular crater also stands as one of Africa’s most alluring safari destinations, supporting solid populations of all of the Big Five (elephant, lion, leopard, black rhino and buffalo), plus a host of other iconic large mammals, in a lush and scenic landscape that frequently draws comparisons to the metaphorical “Garden of Eden” after an extensive game drive at the crater, you will drive straight to Karatu for your dinner and overnight stay.

Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants, after an extensive game drive at Manyara park, you will be driving to Arusha to catch your flight to Stone town Zanzibar for your beach holiday, After pleasant arrival at Zanzibar airport you will be welcomed by one of the Sopai Safaris reprepresentative who will drive you to your dedicated hotel for your dinner and overnight.
